Cathie Martin, White House communications official, testified at Scooter Libby's trial that she was uncomfortable with George W. Bush's decision to declassify a national intelligence estimate (NIE) in order to counter critics of the Iraq war.
In July 2003, Dick Cheney told Martin to use information from the NIE to counter those who said the administration manipulated the intelligence in the lead-up to the Iraq war.
Of course, Bush declassified the NIE for political reasons; he is on record as stating that he declassified the NIE and authorized administration officials to leak it to the press, in order to counter the criticism of former US Ambassador Joe Wilson (Valerie Plame's husband). Wilson, of course, went to Africa to attempt to ascertain whether Sadaam Hussein's regime had attempted to acquire uranium from Africa. (As we all know now, they had not).
It's also amazing to see all of these current and former White House officials singing like songbirds now.
